Dir. Jake Kasdan
Feat. Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart
Reboot of the beloved 90's adventure, with four high school kids discovering an old video game console that transforms them into the avatars they chose to play the game with. Sadly (for us!), it's targeted more for younger viewers than nostalgic adults.

Dir. Patrick Hughes
Feat. Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman
Smart-ass action shennanigans with Ryan Reynolds hired as a bodyguard to protect hitman Samuel L. Jackson who has to testify at the International Criminal Court against Belarusian President, Gary Oldman. Chiefly coasts on the banter between the two leads, who've done this several times before.
